American Idol Results: James Durbin Voted Off?

Posted by on May 12, 2011 at 7:39 PM EST

james durbin adam lambertThe top 4 becomes the top 3 tonight on American Idol.

It is hard to select actual losers from this week on American Idol. All four were pretty good, but this is what it is down to. Now people have to choose between good (James Durbin) and great. This week I only have one loser.

My only choice for this week’s loser is James Durbin. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t like it was terrible; he just wasn’t up to his normal high level. For starters he seemed a little uptight with Lady Gaga. I understand he is married and he has mild Asperger’s which can cause some social issues, so he might not have been comfortable with Gaga grabbing his hips, but it is hard to buy a rock star who is uptight. Aside from that (and that was only a very minor thing that I am likely over-reading) his performances were just a little off. James’s version of “Don’t Stop Believing” was a little off key and to me it felt kind of a like a karaoke version of it. Maybe it is because it is such a well-known song, but it seemed a little cheesy and not in a good way. His second song “Love Potion no.9” was just wrong for him. Gaga should have held him down and not let him do that song or at least help him make it something cool. It just came off as odd and it was proof that maybe you can’t make any song into a rock song.

I have said before and still believe that James Durbin will win American idol and because of that I think he will be safe this week, but I just feel when you compare him to the other three this week he comes in fourth place. I will be very shocked if he is voted out tonight, but you never know what could happen now that we are down to just four on American Idol. Tune in tonight at 8PM on Fox to see it all unfold.

UPDATE: James Durbin has been voted off!!!!!

  1. Your review is so dumb

    • are you kidding Scott over james…

  2. Your comment is silly.

  3. Wow. A hairy fat slob that rarely leaves the couch types a review…. poorly. Pathetic.

  4. Disagree with him all you want, but it turned out he was correct. James was voted off!

  5. Really? James is the only one that was a performer worth watching!!!!!!!

  6. Wow the guy that wrote this review is a complete idiot with no ear for music. I have toured the country as far as Hawaii and James’ vocals were on point with Don’t Stop Believing. This reviewer makes no sense. American Idol is over for me. They always vote off the real musicians and keep the crappy ones. How some of those singers, that were already voted off, even made it in the top anything is beyond me.

  7. Mandes will go farther off American idol then he would of if he made he’s awesome someone will snatch him up as soon as he gets off the show. He will go far and has a great career ahead of him

  8. I truly now believe american Idol is fixed – I have now decided to never watch this show again!!!!
    Haley blue it 2 weeks in a row and is still in the top three – all my friends and I sat here and now are in a state of shock that Haley would win over James when he was never in the bottom 3 FIXED FIXED! I am truly disappointed in American Idol. I would like to see the counts posted but that would never happen.

  9. James departure was LONG overdue! He has always be somewhat out of tune and screechy — an Adam Lambert wannabe, without the pipes to back it up. Nice guy, good story, good singer but not great.

    • james is no adam lambert!!! and he doesn’t screech!! you can guarantee when he does sign an contract and sings on stage he won’t be sucking someone’s cock and rubbing and playing on the stage.

  10. thank heavens the “screaming James” is gone . Got a little full of himself. no help from the idiot judges who really hooked their wagons to Casey and James (not smart). Really need new judges next season.

  11. James Durbin has shown truth talent to stardom, sorry that he was voted off.
    I do wish he will be given a second chance.
    Someone please sign him to a music contract

  12. LOL…Lauren who?….James is the clear winner, if it was a true talent contest and not some country bumkins voting just because they like country music…bad choice America

  13. This review is so off base – out of touch with those of us who watched Am Idol for weeks – and this result, James Durbin voted off? So wrong….I really wish I had not watched this year now – first Pia – one of the best, then Casey – and now James. And now, B-O-R-I-N-G – James belongs in top 3 – and he should have won. Something is rotten in Denmark.

    • Jacob was the best!

  14. True that Scotty in his genre is a total success, and will have offers that are sincere and truly warranted…he may yet bring back the golden age of country music…but to put Lauren in front of James is a bit of a dumb mystery if we look at pure Talent…I would sign him in a minute and I do believe they will be beating down his door to sign him. A true talent does not go un-noticed by those who Know talent.

  15. Is Haley a better singer than Pia or Lauren?? No. She is just too mediocre. Pia, James and Jacob sing so much better. Very devastating results this season and I will not watch AI to watch medicore singers performing.

    • I agree with you. I don’t watch AL at all now.

    • I agree Pia can sing circles around Lauren or Haley anyday and Scotty will be blown away by Jacob, Casey, James, and even Stefano. I guess this is the season of the opposite. They voted the most talented off first and kept the boring mediocre singers till the end. The sad thing about this is that I bet Haley, lauren and Scotty actually think they deserve to be in the top 3. lmao and smh When is the X Factor airing? If Simon was on this season of American Idol, the mediocre singers would have been gone a long time ago. I hate Steven Tyler and JLo as judges because they are too phony. But when Randy actually tries to keep it real, JLO tries to make him be quiet. These kids need Simon to keep it real and say something like, “You sound like a karaoke singer.”

  16. Let’s re cap on some of the “IDOL WINNERS”…LOL can we say Taylor Hicks or perhaps Ruben Sttudard…winning does not state gold…only talent does and many non-winners have made a much bigger impact on the music scene and the money generated then the non-talented counterparts that America voted on…Hmmm…who really votes…I did my share to vote for the real talent and some no confident 15 year old country wanna-be beat him…right…something is wrong

  17. Hey guys, who was voted off American Idol tonight? Oh right, James Durbin 🙂

    • Another childish bullbuster…get a life

  18. Pam…sorry to single you out but you obviously are not a musician or understand what it takes to be one to point fingers at the “Musician” judges and say they got it wrong supporting “Casey”, (an amazing musician), or James..(an amazing singer, song writer, and musician) in lieu of your obvious “Country” choices is a bit ignorant IMHO

  19. BTW guys, we all know this is American “Popularity Contest” Idol. I mean Stefano Langone is a perfect example of that…Pia went home before him?!

    • Stefano was a great singer! But it’s weird how all the strong, talented singers like Pia, Stefano, Casey, James, and Jacob all lost to mediocre pubescent pimple-faced teens.

  20. what the hell? haley over james? that screaming weinie is the top 3?? americn idol is fixed!!!! that witch should have been voted off long time ago… she got pity votes,, because how dare anyone critize her…. stupid cow!! howmany times they have told u to stick to blusey soul songs… you make me sick, to now that james has to leave and your stupid face is still on… you can’t sing… i was very proud of lauren, and scotty…. step up next week guys an dkick curly’s butt!!!!! the top three should have been lauren, scotty, james,,,, america what did u do ?? if haley wins this i will not watch idol anymore… but to be an star u get contracts nd make it yourself idol dosen’t make u.. loook at taylor hicks, where is he lol.. so james will make it!!! i willl buy james, scotty, lauren, pia , pauls records…. hang on james someone will pick u up honey

  21. WTF!! I hate idol, but I watched it this season just because of James Durbin. Each week I was excited to see his performance…NOBODY ELSES….this kid has a great voice …I think only 10 year olds vote and that’s why James is off……Ohh and, Who ever wrote this artice is is a stupid monkey…

  22. The only reason I even watched Idol this season was because of James Durbin. To say he was off and then to watch Scotty that Mad Magazine lookign freak dance around the stage like a huge dork and think that was not the worst of the lot is beyond insane. I wont even watch Idol after seeing James get voted off. I think the show is rigged as well. I called for James and had a very hard time getting through on the lines for him. America sure dropped the ball on this one. The other three stink. Haley doesnt even know who she is as an artist. For that point neither does Lauren. As far as Scotty, who can stand watching him dance around like a dork? If that is what America likes, it just proves America is filled with idiots. Should have figured as much. No real talent ever wins. James had the most pure voice out of any of them. He could sing beautifully like Paul McCartney,and then scream it out as good as Rob Halford from Judas Preist. What a shame America is so “Country Strong”… because I really can’t wait until Country Music dies.

  23. You whiny 12 year olds need to stop blaming Haley and Scotty and start blaming the voters, or rather, the lack of voters for James. He pulled a Daughtry and everyone assumed he was safe. You were warned by Ryan. It’s not the contestants’ fault.

    Note: I HATE scotty and am neutral with Haley and thought that James should’ve been in the top 3, so this is not biased, just pointing out the facts.

  24. i am so madd how did he get voted off he was the best but he will definetly get a recordin deal….. he will turn out like dautry
    I think fox should post the voting count becaus tis show is definetly riged

  25. this is crap, james over scotty haley and the other girl. OOOOMMMMMGGGGGG!!!

  26. If some of you felt James does not have it to win, what do you think about the remaining 3? What do they have to win? Looking back, I never like the performance of Hailey and Laura. They do not look like a real American Idol!!!!! Hailey is so ordinary, there is totally nothing special about her. As for Laura, she sings like a kid, actually no taste at all!!!! As for Scotty the country guy, well to me he’s better than than the two so he ranks no2. I like watching the American Idol but after this season, I,m not going to watch it anymore, it SUCKS…. It was better when Simon was around…….atleast bad performance get criticize….James is my American Idol!!!!!!

  27. let’s blame all those stupid teeny boppers that drool over Scotty and admire ugly blondes like Haley and Ms.Forgettable.

  28. Well, seems like the show has been fixed. If they let such talents as James or Casey win, how they can be sure that they will find somebody better the next year,how they will keep the show going, how they will make money , plus if James or Casey will have a great career, there are more stories for American Idol history..This is my opinion

  29. I live in Bolivia. First time I really looked not miss a single AI programs. From the beginning I liked Scotty and his deep voice and James for being a great rocker. But one question: the winner is only to be AI USA or to be heard and idol of the world?. country music is nice, nice to hear, but … where else on the planet received awards?. rock is universal, people hear it everywhere. Who does not know and like some kind of rock?, my mother is 75 years old, my son 16 and I 45 and we all enjoyed watching the show was James in each presentation. I like to share with my son and his friends some of their activities and tell them that here in Camiri, James has several followers, because I know that when my son took his music on the phone to school, everyone wanted to have it.
    James Force, which awaits a world ahead of you have already conquered a lot of fans.
